zoo event 
last chance 
to name 
baby chimp 

Sunset Zoo offers candy 
trails, cowboys and camp- 
sites to trick-or-treaters 

Jason Strachman Miller 

The Sunset Zoo has scheduled 
its annual Halloween SPOOK- 
tacular for this weekend. 

"This is one of those events, 
like our Earth Day music festival 
in the spring, that appeals to a 
wide range of people," said Allie 
Lousch, marketing director for 
the Sunset Zoo. "Kids of all ages 
either trick-or-treat, enjoy the 
music and the wildlife or jump in 
to help volunteer." 

As the title "Wild Wild West 
SPOOKtacular" implies, this 
years event has a western theme. 
Zerf the Singing Cowboy is 
scheduled to set up a cowboy 
campsite on the Chautauqua 
stage, and zoo staff have created 
five candy trails, a boom town, a 
gold- digging station and a games 

Local organizations and busi- 
nesses have sponsored candy 
booths for the trick-or-treaters, 
and candy will be available in 
some of the activity areas. 

"It is an event that offers 
so much to visitors: chimps, 
snow leopards, candy, trails, all 
wrapped up in a Wild West pack- 
age," Lousch said. "Zoo admission 
is unique during SPOOKtacular; 
admission for each trick- or- treat- 
er is $3. Two adults accompany 
one trick- or- treater for free." 

Discounted tickets are avail- 
able for Friends of Sunset Zoo for 
$2 with the same benefit of two 
free accompanying adults. This 
event is also the last chance for 
people to vote in the CHIMPtas- 
tic Naming Contest to name the 
baby chimpanzee born in August. 

SPOOKtacular is slated to 
begin at noon on both Saturday 
and Sunday, rain or shine, and 
will end each day at 5 p.m.

The proposed wind farm, like this one seen off of U.S. Interstate 70, has the potential to supply K-State's electricity from a local, renewable resource. 

Wind farm investment could provide energy for future 

General Electric Co. proposes 
plan to power K-State with 
renewable wind energy 

Sam Diederich 
staff writer 

Wind power could one day supply 
100 percent of K-State's electricity. 

An exploratory proposal provid- 
ed to the university's administration 
and the KSU Foundation outlines 
plans for a medium- sized wind farm 
that could potentially supply all of 
the university's electricity needs. 

Ben Champion, director of sus- 
tainability, said the General Electric 
Co., one of the world's biggest energy 
investors, approached K-State about 
the possibility of constructing a wind 
farm substantial enough to supply 

20 to 30 megawatts of energy to the 

The K-State campus currently 
consumes approximately 121 kilo- 
watt-hours of energy per year, said 
Champion, and a 20- or 30-mega- 
watt wind farm could provide 
enough energy for K-State to be 
powered completely by renewable 
energy. Such a project would help 
the university respond to a rapidly 
changing environmental landscape. 

"I think the transition away from 
fossil energies to renewable ener- 
gies is an enormous global chal- 
lenge," Champion said. "If we were to 
offset all of our energy consumption 
through investing in a wind farm, I 
think it would demonstrate to the 
world K-State's commitment to 
energy responsibility" 

Not only would a wind farm pro- 
tect the environment and promote 

renewable energy, but it could also 
serve as a potential source of income 
for the investing entity — in this 
case, the KSU Foundation. 

"GE, because they are one of the 
biggest multinational companies in 
the world, is also basically one of the 
biggest banks in the world," Cham- 
pion said. "They have a finance di- 
vision that is partnering with their 
sales division to offer financing op- 
portunities for wind projects." 

The GE finance branch offers 
loans to entities interested in build- 
ing a wind farm. The entity, in turn, 
uses the loan to purchase an appro- 
priately sized wind farm from the GE 
sales branch. Ideally, after the wind 
farm is constructed and energy is 
being produced, the loan can be paid

K-State to host high school 
marching festival on Saturday 

Jennifer Heeke | Collegian 

The K-State Marching Band is set to host the Central States Marching Festival on Saturday. 
Members and faculty will critique 34 high school bands throughout the day. 

Event provides bands 
with experience and 
recruiting opportunity 

Michael Sellman 
junior staff writer 

Instead of roaring crowds 
of football fans, Bill Snyder 
Family Stadium will be filled 
with high school marching 
bands on Saturday during 
the Central States Marching 

A total of 34 high school 
marching bands are listed to 
perform from noon to 9:30 
p.m. on Oct. 23, with a final 
performance by the K-State 
Marching Band. 

"This is the largest in the 
state," said Frank Tracz, di- 
rector of bands. "We're pretty 
proud of it. Everything about 
it is great." 

The festival, hosted by the 
K-State Marching Band, also 
known as the Pride of Wild- 
cat Land, is an opportunity 
to recruit for performing 
band members. 

Each performing band 
will have a one-hour clinical 
starting at 10 a.m. adminis- 
tered by both directors and 
staff of the K-State Marching 
Band and a video critique 
after its performance. The 
bands will also be evaluated 
by a panel of six judges from 
Troy University, Missouri 
Southern State University, 

University of Texas and K- 
State. These judges will rate 
each band from superior to 
poor on a 1-5 scale. Reper- 
toire, performance, coordi- 
nation, creativity and music 
are just some of the qualities 
judges will look at. 

The K-State band's two 
performances, The Glee 
Show and Blood, Sweat and 
Tears, are scheduled to begin 
at 8:45 p.m. 

School bands will be trav- 
eling from Andover, Wich- 
ita, Leavenworth, Topeka, 
Kansas City and other cities 
across Kansas to participate. 

Tracz said that although 
there is a 20 percent chance 
of rain on Saturday, "the 
show must go on." 

Students give back to Manhattan 

Community Service 
Week provides variety of 
volunteer opportunities 

Kristen Ferris 
junior staff center 

K-State's Community Ser- 
vice Week kicks off Saturday 
and will last until the end 
of October, giving students 
the opportunity to volunteer 
around Manhattan. 

"Our mission is to inspire 
students to take action in the 
community. We want them 
to find out what the needs of 
Manhattan and the surround- 
ing communities are and do 
what they can to meet those 
needs," said Dani Cain, senior 
in architectural engineering 
and an organizer for the event 
through the K-State Volunteer 
Center of Manhattan. 

Students will have multiple 
opportunities throughout the 
week to get involved in the 
Manhattan community, start- 
ing with two main activities 
on Saturday. 

"Saturday is Make a Dif- 
ference Day, where about 
250 greeks perform services 
around different local commu- 
nities," Cain said. "They'll be 
cleaning up and volunteering 
around town as well as Milford 
and Tuttle Creek lakes." 

A group of volunteers is 
scheduled to offer services 
to Angel Food Ministries in 

"The students will be pack- 
ing food boxes for Kansas 
Corps," Cain said. "Spots are 

still open for this trip, and we'd 
love to get more students in- 

Community Service Week

nity Service Program, but for 
the past three years, has been 
organized and executed by the 
K-State Volunteer Center of 

"Our number of volunteers 
grows more every year," Cain 

"I think that it's 
really important for 
students to realize 
that Manhattan isn't 
centered around 

Ashley Shenefelt 
senior in animal sciences 
and industry 

Cain said she hopes for a 
large turnout for the event. 

"Our number of volunteers 
varies from year to year, but 
we're hoping for around 500 
people this year, including the 
greek community," Cain said. 
"We try to be as accessible to 
students as we possibly can. 
We're on Facebook and we 
have a website, but mostly we 
rely on word-of-mouth to let 
students know about the ac- 
tivities going on during Com- 
munity Service Week." 

Students can volunteer 
at the Riley County History 
Museum, Big Brothers and Big 
Sisters, Hope Ranch and other 
organizations during the week. 

K-State students and mem- 
bers of the Manhattan com- 
munity have voiced their sup- 

"I think that it's really im- 
portant for students to realize 
that Manhattan isn't centered 
around K-State," said Ashley 
Shenefelt, senior in animal sci- 
ences and industry. 

"By giving students this op- 
portunity to make the Man- 
hattan community a better 
place, they're also getting the 
opportunity to grow in both 
a personal and professional 
manner. I think that's some- 
thing that K-State would want 
for its students." 

Others, like Manhattan 
resident Rasheed Johnson, 20, 
also voiced support. 

"I think it's great that the 
students are giving back to 
the community," Johnson said. 
"The great thing about com- 
munity service week is that 
you know the students who are 
volunteering want to be there 
and really want to help."

teering and the application to

"Our mission at the K-State 
Volunteer Center of Manhat-

partake in leadership and civic 
engagement by exposure to 
Manhattan's needs as a com-

Water polo keeps students involved, in shape 

Chris Wallace 
staff writer 

Anyone who frequents the 
Natatorium in Ahearn Field 
House on Tuesdays and Sundays 
is bound to notice the group of 
K- State students swimming in 
the diving well. They tread water 
for hours, apparently playing 
some sort of game. 

These Wildcats are practicing 
water polo, and they are mem- 
bers of one of K-States many club 
sports. This is a sport that began 
over 100 years ago, and today it 
is a popular Olympic sport that is 
gaining fans across the country. 

"This club has been around 
for four years," said David Star- 
shak, vice president of the club 
and senior in political science. 
"At the start of our season, there 
might be 30 people at our prac- 
tice, but once they see how tough 
the sport is, we usually have 
about 12 at the next practice." 

Water polo is a notoriously 
rough sport. Fouls are only called 
on plays above water, so plenty 
of kicking and rough play goes 
on under the surface. Plus, many 
fouls go uncalled, and players 
have unlimited fouls during a 
game. It takes three flagrant fouls, 
like dunking another player, to

get a player kicked out. Except for 
the goalie, players can only touch 
the ball with one hand. They also 
cannot touch the bottom of the 
pool while they play. 

"Another tough thing about 

water polo is that you have to 
play both offense and defense," 
said Eric Balas, club president 
and sophomore in history. 

Stamina is necessary in such a 
high-energy sport. 

"We easily swim 2,000 yards a 
game, plus we tread water a lot," 
Starshak said. 

Reasons vary as to why mem- 
bers desire to be on the team. 
Both Starshak and Balas swam 
in high school and wanted a way 
to stay in shape and continue 
being in the water. The competi- 
tive nature was another attrac- 
tion, and the relaxed atmosphere 
helped, too. 

Another benefit of being on 
the water polo team is that it 
does not require as much time as 
some other sports do. The team 
holds two practices a week that 
last a few hours, allowing mem- 
bers to stay active in other groups 
around campus. 

"Its nice to have a consistent 
sport, but the lower time com- 
mitment allows me to be active in 
my fraternity and other things," 
Balas said. 

Since this is a club sport, the 
team does not play as many 
games as a regular NCAA-sanc- 
tioned team. However, the group 
does get to travel to schools like 
Minnesota and Iowa State, and 
these tournaments are the high- 
lights of the season. 

The team is a member of the

Additional fee helps 
colleges hire faculty 

$10 per credit hour fee 
remains, privilege fee to 
decrease by 2.4 percent 

Danny Davis 
senior staff writer 

This year's new $10 per 
credit hour fee has allowed 
all seven colleges to make im- 
provements. The fee, tacked 
on to students' tuition, re- 
turned to the colleges for use 
on personnel, instructional 
equipment and other instruc- 
tional support. 

In the Student Senate 
meeting on Thursday, Danny 
Unruh, student body presi- 
dent, gave a presentation out- 
lining key points to a report 
that detailed how the col- 
leges have used the additional 

The College of Arts and 
Sciences spent $2.6 million on 
hiring 29 new faculty mem- 
bers, Unruh said. That expen- 
diture used all the money the 
college received from the new 
credit hour fee. 

Before the fee was put into 
place, the college posted a $3 
million deficit and was down 
40 faculty members, Unruh 

For all the colleges, $4.9 
million was generated, 
with 77 percent of the total 
amount funding personnel, 
he said. This included both 
faculty and graduate teaching 

The College of Engineer- 
ing also devoted all its money 
to hiring new personnel, 
while the College of Agricul- 
ture spent about half on fac- 
ulty, Unruh said. 

"Those funds are now in 
the process of being allocat- 
ed," Unruh said. "This fee is 
not going away. It will remain 
at $10 or go up." 

The Student Senate also 
voted for a decrease in the 
Student Activity Privilege 
Fee. This fee is paid by stu- 
dents through their tuition. 
The fund provides money for 
the college councils, campus -

terrorist camps, teach their 
students exactly this. 

The American Heritage 
New Dictionary of Cultural 
Literacy defines terrorism as 
"acts of violence committed 
by groups that view them- 
selves as victimized by some 
notable historic wrong." But 
terrorist groups have several 
motives, whether those be 
political, religious, ideologi- 
cal or so forth. 

The U.S. marked the 
ninth anniversary since the 
attack on the World Trade 
Center this year. The impact 
of these attacks stunned 
the whole world. "America 
under attack" headlines 
swamped newspapers and 
news channels. It was in- 
timidating to hear America 
was shaken. The image that 
the country was invincible 
to terrorism was beginning 
to fade. 

On the other side of the 
world, India does not mark 
such anniversaries anymore. 
Secularism, democracy 
and tolerance, which were 
known to be the strengths 
of India, have made it a soft 

target for terrorist attacks. 

I witnessed the local train 
bombings that happened in 
Mumbai in 2006. Accord- 
ing to a July 11, 2006, article 
on, a total of seven 
bombs were set off over 1 1 
minutes, killing more than 
170 people. Bodies were 
torn apart, the asynchro- 
nous sound of the sirens 
of tons of ambulances ran 
all over the city, bloodshed 
everywhere — it was the 
worst emotional experience 
I have ever had. Kashmir, 
once known as "Paradise 
on Earth," became victim to 
the atrocities of terrorism, 
backed by politics more than 
60 years ago, and is still in 
the clutches of the monster, 
which is threatening to take 
over the world. 

The problem of terrorism 
is not just in India or the 
U.S. It has become a global 
issue and is deepening its 
roots in the soils of different 
countries and continents 
every day. Words like 
infiltration, cross-border ter- 
rorism, suicide bombing and 
training camp have become 
a part of the common vo- 
cabulary of kids and adults 

Israel has a long history 
associated with terrorism. 
Afghanistan has been used 
as a training and operational 
base by terrorist organiza- 
tions owing to the disor- 
derly radical rule of the 
Taliban government. Other 
countries in the Middle 
East, Africa and South Asia 
have been safe havens for 
terrorists and have been 

instrumental in funding and 
encouraging such activities. 
Indonesia, Egypt, Malaysia, 
different parts of Europe; the 
list goes on. 

The Jurist Legal Intel- 
ligence website reported that 
almost every country has a 
terrorism prevention law. 
How many have been suc- 
cessful at foiling terrorist at- 
tempts or getting a foolproof 
security system for citizens? 
I doubt any have. 

India has been fighting 
terrorism for over half a 
century. Unfortunately, the 
country is still losing the war 
for several reasons. 

A Dec. 9, 2008, New York 
Times article reported how 
terrorist organizations have 
evolved in their use of tech- 
nology and modern means 
of communication with the 
use of high-tech facilities. 
The masterminds behind a 
few of the most notorious 
terrorist outfits are quali- 
fied engineers. The judicial 
system was not designed to 
handle such acts. However, 
its time for a change. 

Also, anti-terrorist laws 
and organizations have met 
with extreme criticism on 
humanitarian grounds. The 
opposition comes from 
human rights activists 
stating these laws violate 
the fundamental human 
rights as stated in the Indian 

Finally, politics and 
loopholes in the judiciary 
prove to be a disadvantage 
for possible solutions to this 

This is the disheartening 

reality many nations face. 

Terrorists have adopted 
this way of violence to make 
themselves heard. How 
long, as the recipients of this 
terror, should we not make 
ourselves heard? How much 
more should we depend on 
our governments to do it for 
us? It is high time that these 
age-old questions are an- 
swered and the war against 
terrorism be waged. The 
war, not against a particular 
community or sect, but 
against fanaticism, against 
the murderers of humanity. 

The community of terror- 
ists is growing every day by 
leaps and bounds. It is diffi- 
cult to see a way out without 
resorting to violent means. 
However, the use of force, 
stringent laws, military and 
war will not solve 
the issue. 

ucation need to reach 
innocent children before the 
knowledge of bombs and 
jihad does. Governmental 
security for the protection 
of the family needs to reach 
young men before the aid of 
the militants. The concept of 
social equality needs to be 
accepted by everyone. 

Whether we can get rid 
of this problem is difficult 
to answer. But we can, of 
course, be hopeful and 
perform our own duties by 
being vigilant, aware and 
doing whatever we can to 
help prevent any further 
spread of this pandemic.

go away 

Thursday night football 
games have got to go. In theory, 
they're kind of cool simply 
because gameday comes earlier; 
what fans anticipate the whole 
week comes several days sooner 
than usual. But the cons of the 
schedule shift outweigh the pros. 

First of all, it puts Vanier 
Football Complex in a funk. 
Head coach Bill Snyder said the 
football program runs on a very 
strict schedule. Staff do certain 
activities on certain days leading 
up to games, so when gameday 
is moved up from Saturday 
to Thursday, everything gets 
thrown off. Of course, the ath- 
letes have classes and homework 
just like everyone else, which 
I would imagine makes their 
lives a bit more hectic than usual 
from that aspect as well. 

As an extension of this, 
Thursday night games present 
students in general with a dif- 
ficult decision. Should they A) 
miss classes to tailgate and get 
good seats, B) miss just their last 
class and get there when they 
can, or C) go to the class to get 
the education they're paying for 
instead of going to the game, 
even when they paid for tickets? 

In my estimation, it's pretty 
unfair to make students choose. 

Most kids or their families 
are paying upwards of $15,000 
a year to attend K- State. That's 
a significant investment. 
Sometimes missing class isn't 
a big deal, but in smaller, more 
advanced classes, participation 
counts for a lot, and the discus- 
sions missed are hard to capture 
with notes from a classmate. 

Students who have season 
tickets have forked over a couple 
hundred dollars to see home 
football games. That money 
could go a long way toward 
groceries, rent, utility bills, etc. 
But because K- State has such a 
great athletics program, great 
tradition and great gameday 
atmosphere, tons of students 
sacrifice the bucks to be a part 
of the fun. 

The way I see it, K-State has 
a fantastic situation: People 
are enrolling in the university 
and supporting the athletics 
program by buying tickets for 
games. Why make it difficult for 
them to be a part of both? 

While the Wildcats expe- 
rienced the lowest low and 
highest high of the season so 
far — getting plastered by the 
Nebraska Cornhuskers 48-13 
in Bill Snyder Family Stadium 
and shellacking KU by a score 
of 59-7 on the Jayhawks' home 
field, respectively — during 
Thursday night games, I prefer 
the roller coaster on the week-

Rowing team prepares for face off against KU

The K-State rowing team practices bright and early atTuttle Creek Reservoir. K-State hosts KU for the Sunflower Showdown on Saturday; races start at 9 a.m. 

Staff Reports 

The K-State rowing team is sched- 
uled to compete in the Sunflower 
Showdown at Tuttle Creek Reservoir 
tomorrow. The event has been canceled 
the last two years due to inclement 

Though the teams haven't competed 
in Manhattan since 2007, the Wildcats 
currently hold the title over the Jay- 

Head coach Patrick Sweeney said he 
hopes the team can do what it has been 
doing so far this season. 

"We always have the competitive- 
ness" Sweeney said. "The springtime 

is the real season 
and we are looking 
for progression and 
what can happen in 
head-to-head races." 

He also said the 
team has been doing 
well in practices and 
looks to repeat what 
they did earlier this 
season at the Head 
of the Oklahoma 
competition, when 
the varsity and 
novice crews placed highly among the 
other teams in the conference.

He said it will be 
interesting to see 
how it pans out for 
each individual. The 
Varsity 8 lineup remains the same from 
the race in Oklahoma City, but Swee- 
ney said there have been some chang- 

es. "We are still holding frame 

lineups, but there are some changes to 
the second lineup to see if they can do 
better," Sweeney said.

Rowing as physically challenging as football, basketball 

Justin Nutter 

With the rowing edition of 
the Sunflower Showdown just 
one day away, take a moment to 
ask yourself this: How much do 
you really know about the sport 
of rowing? 

With practices in the early 
morning hours and a sched- 
ule that rarely features home 
competition, Wildcat rowers 

comprise one of the univer- 
sity's most unknown NCAA 
sanctioned teams. But, as this 
sports writer found out the hard 
way, the physical demands of 
the sport rank right up there 
with any football or basketball 
program in the country. 

A couple weeks ago, a certain 
K-State rower, who also happens 
to be a Collegian multimedia 
editor — don't worry, I won't 
name names — was visibly sore 
after logging a few thousand 
meters on one of the team's 
ergometers, or erg machines. 
Unfortunately for me, my brain- 
to-mouth filter wasn't function- 
ing at that exact moment, so I 
made a sarcastic remark. I don't 
remember the exact word- 
ing, but it was something like, 

"Come on, it can't be THAT 

Apparently, that was the 
wrong thing to say. The 
anonymous rower immedi- 
ately challenged me to try 1,000 
meters on the erg. It was a joke, 
or so I thought, so I laughed it 
off and continued on with my 
ill-advised comments. 

But, as fate would have it, the 
topic came up again on the way 
home from K-State's last football 
game. A certain Collegian sports 
editor — again, I'll leave names 
out of this — was within earshot, 
and not only did she "approve" 
of the rower's idea, but they 
decided it needed to be filmed. 
Not only was it really going to 
happen, it was going to be put 
on the Internet for the whole 

world to see. 

Fast-forward to the following 
Saturday. I arrived at the training 
room in Ahearn Field House 
and was briefed on proper form 
and technique — all of which I 
clearly forgot once I started. Not 
long after, I finished my "assign- 
ment" drenched in sweat and 
out of breath. Despite rowing 
for what felt like 30 minutes, I 
recorded a time of 4:21.3. 

I'm obviously no fine-tuned 
athletic machine, but covering 
a kilometer in under 4:30 has to 
be pretty solid, right? That's what 
I thought — at least until I saw 
the list of times for each team 
member. I would be the worst 
rower on the team, hands down. 
As if that wasn't enough good 
news, it was then revealed to me 

that a typical race covers twice 
the distance I had just recorded. 
Hats off to you, K-State rowers. 
You make it look a lot easier 
than it really is. 

If you want to watch me 
make a fool out of myself, or 
just want to feel better about 
your own athletic ability, check 
out the video on the Collegian's 
multimedia page. If you want to 
see how rowing is really done, 
head out to Tuttle Creek Reser- 
voir this weekend to watch the 
Wildcats try to defend their title 
against the Jayhawks.

Tennis players 
travel to regional 

Danny Davis 
senior staff writer 

The tennis team will close 
its fall season this weekend. 
Four players will attend the 
USTA/ITA Central Region- 
al Championships in Fay- 
etteville, Ark., while the rest 
of the team will compete in 
the KU Classic. 

Senior Antea Huljev, 
junior Petra Chuda, sopho- 
more Karla Bonacic and 
freshman Peta Niedermay- 
erova were selected to com- 
pete at the regional tour- 
nament, which serves as a 
qualifying event for the ITA 
National Indoors Champi- 
onships, said head coach 
Steve Bietau. 

"This is a pretty elite 
tournament," Bietau said. 
"It's really an honor and a 
great opportunity for play- 
ers to go there." 

Players competing in the 
KU Classic will also face 
tough competition. They 
will have the opportunity to 
compete in a lot of matches, 
Bietau said. 

The team comes off a 
three-week break from 

tournament play. 

"The break has been 
good; we've got a lot of 
work done," Bietau said. 
"Players have worked aw- 
fully hard." 

He said he feels as if the 
team is well-prepared for 
this weekend's tournament, 
but he will find out when 
play begins. 

Bietau said he wants to 
see progress. The players 
have made gains in practice, 
but now they must do so in 

Huljev is nearing the 
50-win mark for her colle- 
giate career. She needs four 
more singles wins to reach 
that milestone. 

"The real significant 
thing about Antea's record 
is that it's come against 
the toughest competition," 
Bietau said. "None of those 
wins have come easily, and 
she's had to work for every 
one of them." 

The KU Invitational 
begins today and lasts 
through Sunday. The ITA 
regional championships 
began Thursday and lasts 
through Monday. 

Round two begins against No. 10 Longhorns 

Lauren Gocken | Collegian 

Head coach of the K-State volleyball team Suzie Fritz coaches a 
player during the Wildcats' match against Nebraska on Saturday 
evening. Tonight K-State plays Texas in Austin at 6:30 p.m. 

Sam Nearhood 
senior staff writer 

Round two of the conference 
portion of the K-State volleyball 
team's schedule begins tonight, 
and the Wildcats will not have 
an easy start. 

At 6:30 p.m., K-State (9-12, 
3-7 Big 12 Conference) will play 
No. 10 University of Texas (13-5, 
8-2), the second-best team in 
the conference and a power- 
house in the national standings. 

The two teams vied against 
each other just two weeks ago, 
when the Longhorns came to 
Manhattan and swept K-State 
with an implacable buildup of 
momentum that proved too 
much to overcome. 

This time, Texas is playing 
on its home court in Gregory 
Gymnasium, where it boasts a 
perfect record this season. Since 
the meeting earlier this month, 
the Longhorns have won their 
three matches, two of them in 
sweeps, and continued their 
steamrolling of the conference. 

Because the K-State volley- 
ball team played in Waco, Texas, 
on Wednesday — where Baylor 
dropped it in three games after 
an unusual period of undula- 
tions, which always favored the 
Bears in the end — the Wild- 
cats stayed in the state for the 
two days leading up to tonight's 
match, giving them plenty of 
time to rest and accustom to 
the different court. Senior libero 
Lauren Mathewson said this 
new situation could hinder her 

"We've never done it before, 
so it'll be interesting," Mathew- 

son said. "But I think that, any 
time that you're on the road, it's 
going to be difficult, so I think 
that it will be a challenge for us." 

Mathewson also said travel- 
ing in this conference, no matter 
the unusual circumstances, is a 
daunting challenge, so the team 
will need to be at its peak. 

"We're going to tough places 
to play at. Any place in the Big 
12 is hard to play at," she said. 
"So I think that we're going to 
have to be focused and make 
sure we're taking care of the 
things on our side so that we 
don't let the environment and 
other things like that get in the 

And there are certainly many 
things that could get in K- State's 
way, like Texas's high team sta- 
tistics in the slots of hitting per- 
centage, blocks and service aces, 
all of which can shift momen- 
tum with one good play and 
freeze up a team in an instant. 

One player to watch for 
guaranteed action on the 
Longhorns' side of the net is 
junior middle blocker Rachael 
Adams, a 6-foot-2 powerhouse 
who ranked No. 3 among high 
school recruits in 2008. So far 
this season, she is second in 
the league standings for hitting 
percentage at .433 and fourth in 
blocks per game. When she last 
played K-State, Adams recorded 
a .588 and a career-high nine 
block assists and one solo. 

First serve is set for 6:30 
p.m. Fans not able to attend the 
match can watch online at tex- or listen to KM AN

Pick-up line approaches: Classic Candid vs. Cheesy Modern 

Ariel Crockett 
junior staff writer 

In a world revolving so heavily 
around love, nearly everyone at some 
point will be tempted to go on the 
prowl in search of someone they can 
share it with. 

So, on the prowl, they go in search 
of love or its opposite, lust. However, 
no matter the purpose of the mission, 
one must first obtain an approach. 
This is where the "pick-up line" 
comes in handy. The pick-up line is 

very important; it plants the seed for 
the first impression. But which ap- 
proaches "work" and which are total 

There are two types of pick-up 
lines: the Classic Candid, which 
would be a straightforward, honest 
or humorous approach, "Hello, my 

name is . I think you're beautiful 

and would love to get to know you 

Then there is the Cheesy Modern 
approach, like "Baby, somebody 
better call God because it's obvious 

he's missing an angel!" Of the two, 
this is probably the more commonly 
used among college students. 

Po Sen Chu, graduate student in 
psychology, described a study he said 
was performed to see which approach 
women respond more positively to. 

"The study found that the major- 
ity of women that performed in the 
study gravitated more to the 'inno- 
cent' and 'direct requests,' while the 
lesser amount of women gravitated 
more towards the cute pick-up lines," 
Chu said. 

He said studies revealed that more 
sexually charged pick-up lines usu- 
ally backfire on the ones using them. 
Chu said another study showed men 
usually enjoy being approached by 
women and nearly any pick-up line 
would work when women approach 

In short, he said, studies show men 
have a higher chance in gaining a 
positive response from women if they 
opt for the more candid approach in- 
stead of the cheesy pick-up line. 

Keunna Hayes, junior in pre- 

psychology, said she had never used 
pick-up lines on guys because she 
doesn't approach guys. She also said 
she has heard some pretty dumb lines 
in the past and that some lines work. 
However, it depends on the swag of 
the guy and his use of context in the 

Vernie Wright, sophomore in 
open option, said he doesn't use pick- 
up lines and opts for the honest ap- 
proach by just being himself. But, he 
said, "Pick-up lines could work out 
OK if you are good at it."

In Prague, student eats pizza, opens mind 

Elena Buckner 
edge editor 

Mallori Martin is part 
of our weekly series on in- 
ternational life and travel 
featuring K-State students 
who have experienced 
studying abroad and stu- 
dents living and studying 
in their own countries 
worldwide. Martin, senior 
in marketing, studied in 
Prague, Czech Republic. 

Q: What was your aca- 
demic schedule like? 

I took five classes: in- 
ternational marketing, 
international retailing, 
labor economics, stra- 
tegic management and 
economic history. I had 
international marketing 
every Monday for two 
hours and labor eco- 
nomics every Wednes- 
day for two hours. My 
other three classes were 
intensive courses, which 
means I took them for a 
week during the semester 
and then I was done with 
them. I got to choose my 
schedule, and it really 
worked out for me be- 
cause I could travel a lot. 

Q: What kind of accommo- 
dation did you have? What 
did you do for food? 

We lived in dorms named Jarov A, 
B, C, D, F, G and they ranged from 
four- to six-people flats. We had a 
kitchenette in our dorm, but it wasn't 
the best. Six of us had to share a mini 
refrigerator; there was an old stove 
and a sink to do the dishes — no oven, 
microwave or dishwasher. When we 
did cook in our dorms, we made in- 
stant pasta. There were a lot of pizze- 
rias in Prague, so we ended up eating 
a lot of pizza. 

Q: What was the most popular night 
for drinking and where did people go

to drink? What was the most common 
drink of choice? 

I do not drink, but the common 
drinks were Pilsner Ur quell (Czech 
beer), Absinthe shots (it is legal there) 
and Krusovice (another Czech beer). 
Beer was cheaper than water, and 
Tuesday night was the most popular 
night for going out because Nation- 
2Nation was Tuesday nights. 

Nation2Nation parties were insane; 
they were hosted by our university, 
but any university student in Prague 
could go. There was a theme each 
week where a different nation made 
a presentation about their nation that 
included that country's food, drinks 

and drinking games. 
Nation2Nation rotated 
between five different 
clubs. ... Several hun- 
dred people attended 
these parties. 

Q:What was your 
favorite thing about the 

My favorite thing 
about the culture was 
the lack of a routine and 
that it was such a care- 
free atmosphere. Every 
day was different and we 
were constantly sponta- 

Q: What did you miss 
most about the U.S. or K- 
State? What do you miss 
most about Prague now? 

When I was abroad, I 
really did not miss that 
much until K-State went 
to the NCAA tourna- 
ment. During the NCAA 
tournament, we recruit- 
ed K-State fans and after 
we went out at night, we 
would come back and 
watch the games on 
ESPN. When K-State 
beat Xavier to go on to 
the Elite Eight at around 
6:30 in the morning, 
we went around Prague 
singing the fight song! 
What I miss the most 
about the Czech Republic is more 
than just the beautiful city of Prague, 
but also the amazing people I met. I 
was with them for four months, and 
now, thinking I might not ever see 
them again hurts. 

Q: Were there any random facts or 
realizations you discovered there that 
you would like to share? 

Studying abroad made me realize 
how narrow-minded I was. It was the 
biggest life lesson I have ever had. I 
definitely grew up during this expe- 
rience. I am also very thankful that I 
had the opportunity to study abroad.

George Weston, graduate student in 
public administration and sociol- 
ogy, asked, "Baylor still has a football 

K-State's football team will be play- 
ing Baylor this weekend in Waco, 
Texas. This provides students the op- 
portunity for a road trip and any fan 
who wants to cheer on the Wildcats 
will have to make the drive, as the 
game will not be televised. 

Jordan Spencer, senior in mass 
communications, said he is "really 
upset it isn't on TV and the only way 
to see it is to go." However, he also said 
he might be able to follow the game 
online instead. 

Nathan Shaw, sophomore in soci- 
ology, said he has been to Waco sever- 
al times and likes the town. Shaw said 
he and his family used to stop in Waco 
and stay the night on the way to visit 
family in Texas every summer, but it 
has been four years since his last visit. 

Scott Miller, senior in leadership 
studies at Texas A&M, said he also 
visited Waco a few times. 

"It's pretty normal and boring, 
to be honest," he said. "Off campus, 
there aren't a whole lot of things to do. 
Waco is a crappy college town with 
really nice people. Common Grounds 
makes great coffee and I hear their 
zoo is fun." 

Pfc. Sean Roy, from Olathe, who is 
stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., for 
the Marine Corps, recalled a road trip 
he made to Waco. 

"I found it to be a dirty place, not 
like Kansas," Roy said. "The people 
were pompous. I ended up getting 
into an argument with a waitress 
about how Texas was better than ev- 
eryone and how they were going to 

It wasn't all negative, however. Roy 
said he went to a taco place where the 
food was "quite tasty." 

"Overall, I was not pleased with my 

trip there," Roy said. "I would not go 
back unless I had to, and I honestly 
don't know why I would." 

He said, however, that if he does 
end up attending K-State after he's 
done serving in the Marine Corps, 
he would consider going to a football 
game against Baylor, whether in Man- 
hattan or Waco. 

Mark Line, sophomore in me- 
chanical engineering, who grew up in 
Texas and attends K-State, gave a dif- 
ferent view on things than Roy. 

"[Baylor's] fans don't compare to 
K-State's," Line said. "But their foot- 
ball team is actually decent this year, 
so that may have changed." 

Matt McCallum, junior in eco- 
nomics at Baylor, said tacos are not 
the only tasty food in town. 

"George's is the best bar in town 
— best food and drinks," McCallum 
said. "It has served presidents and 
famous musicians. The chicken fried 
steak is amazing." 

McCallum said this weekend is 
Baylor's homecoming and its first op- 
portunity to play for a bowl game in 
15 years. 

"It's going to be crazy since we have 
the oldest and largest homecoming 
celebration in the country," he said. 
"There will be a free concert, bonfire 
and carnival at our pep rally on Friday 

McCallum emphasized that home- 
coming is always the biggest game of 
the year at Baylor, so this game could 
not be more important to Baylor stu- 

Miller said visitors to Waco might 
end up discovering it's the hidden 
things that offer the most unique ex- 

Listing Waco's eccentricities, Miller 
said, "The Dr. Pepper Museum is 
there. Willie Nelson went to Baylor. 
They have two real bears on campus. 
Ashley and Jessica Simpson were 
born there." 

With so many random attractions 
to find in Waco, it might just be worth 
the long drive for those looking to 
support the Wildcats.

WIND | Credits could help pay loan 

Continued from Page 1 

off using money generated by 
the wind farm. Because of the 
nature of the electrical grid, 
energy produced by a wind 
farm can be sold on the open 

"There are these things 
called renewable energy credits, 
and they can be sold to people 
who want to offset their con- 
sumption of fossil fuel energy," 
Champion said. "Electrons on 
the grid travel at the speed of 
light, so who gets the credit for 
wind energy is something that 
is sold on markets." 

The university, which Cham- 
pion said spent $8.5 million on 
electrical energy last year, could 
purchase the renewable energy 
credits from the Foundation 
rather than from a traditional 
fossil fuel energy supplier. This 
transaction would allow the 
Foundation to pay off the loan 
from GE, and K- State could 
officially claim its campus was 
completely powered by wind 

However, investing in a tech- 
nology like wind energy raises a 
number of concerns. First and 
foremost, is the Foundation 
willing and able to take on the 
loan from GE and invest in a 
wind farm? 

The organization and the K- 
State administration could not 
be reached for comment, but 
Champion described the Foun- 
dations concerns. 

"The Foundation is an entity 
that makes a lot of investments 
and basically supports the uni- 
versity in a number of ways, but 
it does not have the expertise to 
be the owner and operator of 
a wind farm," Champion said. 
"That is basically the main con- 
cern. If this is moved forward, 
the Foundation would be re- 
sponsible for running a wind 

That responsibility of keep- 
ing the turbines operational is 
the Foundations biggest incen- 
tive for turning down the loan 
and investment, but Champion 
said it is possible that GE or 
another organization would be 
able to provide caretakers for 
the turbines. 

Before serious action is 
taken, K- State must find an- 
swers to the question of whether 
such an arrangement is possible 
and whether the cost of mainte- 
nance and upkeep crews would 
prevent the wind farm from 
providing investment returns. 

The location of the wind 
farm is another issue of con- 

"We aren't going to build a 
wind farm on campus or any- 
where near campus," Cham- 
pion said. "We just don't have 
good wind, and you need great 
wind if you are going to make 
an investment like this. But the 
Foundation does have prop- 
erty rights to a number of sites 
around the state that we might 

In terms of a location's po- 
tential for wind energy, K- State 
and General Electric could not 
do much better than Kansas. 

According to a study by 
the Pacific Northwest Labora- 
tory, Kansas has the potential 
to create 1,070 billion kilowatt 
hours of energy per year by way 
of wind. Only North Dakota 
and Texas have a greater poten- 
tial for wind energy. 

Zack Pistora, senior in po- 
litical science and president 
of Students for Environmen- 
tal Action, said he believes K- 
State should make changes to 
its energy consumption now to 
prepare for the future. 

"As an institution of higher 
education, we should be aware 
of issues that are going to be 
affecting our future, and obvi- 
ously energy is going to be a 
big concern," Pistora said. "We 
have to think about how to get 
our energy sustainably and in a 
healthy and responsible way." 

Champion agreed, saying he 
would like to see more students 
join in on the energy consump- 
tion conversation. 

"I definitely encourage stu- 
dents to voice their desire about 
all kinds of energy and sustain- 
ability topics," Champion said. 
"I think it's worth students 
knowing that this is an opportu- 
nity to look into, and they have 
a right to voice themselves and 
say that the university should 
be looking into its renewable 
energy options." 

POLO | Tourneys a blast 5 for players 

Continued from Page 3 

Great Plains Division, which 
includes schools like Kansas, 
Nebraska, Illinois State, Min- 
nesota and Iowa State. K-State 
plays two tournaments each 
season, with four games at 
each tournament. The drives 
to these tournaments can be 
long and tiring, but the group 

is close enough that they turn 
into a mini-vacation rather 
than a laborious journey. 

"The best thing about being 
on this team is the people on 
our team. We've grown close 
and the tournaments are a 
blast," Balas said. 

Starshak also said he likes 
the team dynamics. 

"I like how we bring to- 

gether people from different 
majors, different living styles 
and really all walks of life," 
Starshak said. 

The team is traveling to 
Minnesota this week for a 
tournament. Those interest- 
ed in watching the team can

wide organizations, and multi- 
cultural student organizations, 
among others. 

"The committee decided 
that it was reasonable to give an 
overall decrease," said Matthew 
James, privilege fee committee 
chair. "During the last cycle, 
they received a fairly signifi- 
cant increase, which rested in 
a large surplus in their reserve 

That surplus totaled 
$76,287. Overall, the fee will 
decrease by 2.4 percent. 

James said the committee 

looked at each entity individu- 
ally. The organizations are al- 
lowed to withdraw $10,000 
per fiscal year from the reserve 
account should they require 
it, pending the approval of the 
committee, he said. 

A revised Principles of 
Community resolution was 
passed in Senate. The docu- 
ment, originally written in 
2001 by governing bodies of 
K- State, was revised last year, 
but the revised document did 
not meet the approval of the 
Faculty Senate. 

It stalled in the Faculty 
Senate and underwent chang- 

es, Unruh said. After that, 
every governing body except 
SGA approved the document 
during the spring semester. 

The principles outline sever- 
al important aspects that make 
K- State a safe and welcoming 
campus. Two of the principles 
are "We affirm the inherent 
dignity and value of every 
person and strive to maintain 
an atmosphere of justice based 
on respect for each other," and 
"We affirm the value of human 
diversity for community." 

The resolution passed
